Tell me about the state of food in Gainesville

Hey, folks! I lived in Gainesville from 1996 to 2003 as a poor student, and I've hardly been back since. I was just wondering about the food scene in town, since it changed a lot while I was there and has probably changed even more in the last decade (almost) since I lived there.

I was particularly interested in any mid-range to "nice" restaurants (though not necessarily expensive ones) like gastropubs, new additions to the ethnic food scene, any awesome Cuban or Mexican, Turkish or Greek, any farmer's markets or food trucks, and anything else new and noteworthy. Basically, I'm interested in anything aside from the countless pizza/wings/burgers/subs/sports bars catering to college kids, and even the standouts among those.

And as far as grocery shopping, is Publix still the best option around? It looks like Costco hasn't made it to G'ville yet.
